Express Yourself - Movies and a book for 2013




The Express Yourself topic of the week that Dani and I would like to discuss is...

Are there any books, movies, or music you're anticipating for in 2013?





Movies:

Iron Man 3 with Robert Downey, Jr. - May 2013 - Stark goes up against his nemesis for this installment - The Mandarin. Love Downey's quick wit and one-liners!

World War Z with Brad Pitt - June 2013 - Lane tries to stop a zombie outbreak. And these zombies don't walk- they scurry like thousands of cockroaches going in for a last meal. *shivers*

The Wolverine with Hugh *sigh* Jackman - July 2013 - Logan goes to Japan to train with a samurai warrior.

Catching Fire with Jennifer Lawrence - November 2013 - Katniss gets put into the games again, this time for  the Quarter Quell.


Book:


Triangles by Kimberly Ann Miller - June 2013 - A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could go wrong? In the Bermuda Triangle - a lot. 

Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life--her father's death years ago, her mother's medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her--seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. 
When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she's gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they're a happy couple... a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying "Happy Anniversary"... and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship's doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she's warned that these "alternate realities" could become permanent. 

She just has to ask herself one question—how the hell is she going to get out of this mess?



What books, movies, or music are you psyched about this year?

After brainstorming and talking to Carolyn BrownDani @Entertaining Interests and I have decided to use a linky that you only have to sign up for once. Yep, no more signing up every week. Just fill out the info in the below linky and then post every week. If you miss a week or two, don't fret. We're very understanding hosts.

  1. I've seen a few things about Triangles a while back. I'll have to add it to my Goodreads list though.

    I don't have much, especially not movies or music. One book I'm looking forward to is Christa Desir's Fault Line.

  7. Triangles does sound like an interesting read! I'll be on the look out for that one this year. I'm looking forward to IronMan III and anything with "Hugh *sigh* Jackman" in it too, lol! But I also can't wait to The Man of Steel. He's coming out this year isn't he?
